This museum is a great favorite of our family, including grandparents, adult children, grandchildren. I'm talking kids, toddlers to teens, just enthralled! It has outdoor as well as indoor activities and displays attractive to all ages, is very educational as well as being loads of fun: our family favorites outside are the playground, petting zoo, wild animal exhibits, wind and other nature exhibits, dinosaur trail, butterfly house, and the train. Inside favorites are special events (e.g. robots!), exhibits on weather, insects, physics exhibits, especially specialized play areas for children of different ages. There are fees but discounts for county residents and also annual passes. Check it out online and do come!
